«The race was very long – said Bagnaia at the end of the race – unfortunately I was not in the right situation with the front tire. To be on the safe side, since I have already made too many mistakes this season, we have tried to risk less on the choice. I had some problems with the front wheel locking, but in the end it went well, I am very happy. I imagined that Quartararo would have recovered superbly, this weekend he was faster than us ».

About Miller’s overtaking he says: «When Jack overtook me I realized that I should have pushed a little more, increased the pace. I tried it, I knew that the rear tire would hold up until the last 5 laps, then it really dropped a lot. But we did a good job with the used tires all weekend, so we knew we were ready in this situation. Unfortunately in the early stages of the race I could not push with the front tire, because I had a lot of problems with a full tank of petrol. But slowly it went better and better, the last two laps I was really in a critical situation with the tires, but in the end it went well ».

The next race is in Misano on September 4th. «I am very happy, it is my home race, I am very happy, it will be important not to make mistakes like last year, I will try to do a weekend at the height of the last GPs. I hope that I can entertain you ».
